PerkinElmer has launched the DA 6200 NIR analyzer, which will help meat and olive processors to conduct quality and process control more accurately, easily and quickly.

The DA 6200 broadens PerkinElmer’s advanced portfolio of food testing solutions, which spans from plant genetics, crop health, and nutritional and compositional testing, to adulteration and food fraud detection, as well as pesticide, heavy metal and solvent analysis.

The DA 6200 analyzer, part of PerkinElmer’s Perten product offerings, is based on next generation Diode Array Near-Infrared Transmission Spectroscopy (NIR) technology. In 30 seconds, it can provide accurate test results of fat, moisture and protein levels in a sample – as well as collagen, salt and ash. This accuracy and speed also translate to very large, inhomogeneous samples.

Using the DA 6200 analyzer, producers of sausage, ground meat or poultry products will be able to get the highest yield from the incoming unprocessed meat. In addition, they can improve consistency in production and verify compliance with regulatory and brand standards for quality of the final product. Olive oil producers can leverage the analyzer to verify olive quality, predict the potential yield of oil and optimize the oil extraction process.

The compact size and battery power option of the DA 6200 analyzer make it fully portable, allowing flexibility in the production environment. Its intuitive touchpad screen helps technicians and scientists generate clear, easy-to-read results.

The analyzer is also equipped with customized meat and olive product calibrations designed to work across a range of product types, eliminating the need for onsite collaboration development.

“With a world population of over 7.6 billion, the number of people who need to be served by the global food supply chain is constantly expanding,” said Greg Sears, vice president and general manager, Food, Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry, PerkinElmer. “It is critical that the food entering this enormous and geographically dispersed market is safe, has nutritional value and delivers on the ingredients and quality levels promised on its labeling. PerkinElmer’s food testing solutions are helping customers meet these demands and the new DA 6200 analyzer enables meat and olive producers to further enhance their quality and process control efforts.”
